    What do you mean hijacked? When I tell CPAN.pm to install it it tries to install D/DJ/DJBERG/Set-String-0.03.tar.gz and I am doing it off FUNET.

    I suspect you are talking about to search.cpan.org which has a long standing problem in that it totally ignores the PAUSE ownership/security information and just displays the latest upload of a given module. CPAN allows multiple uploads of a given module, but the official package list which the CPAN shell uses will only point to one (which must be one of the owners of the package or co-mainters). So if you want to confuse people, upload your own DBI. All CPAN shell users won't notice but everyone who uses search.cpan.org will get yours.
